Do you miss Universal Studios Hollywood?

Your chance to return to the iconic Los Angeles theme park will start in just a few days. The park is taking its first step toward reopening with a new outdoor shopping and dining experience, starting March 12, 2021.

The experience will be called "Taste of Universal" and will take place in certain sections of the park.

"Taste of Universal" will only open on weekends from noon to 7 p.m. and will have coronavirus safety guidelines in place. Those guidelines include: limited capacity, social distancing, and face coverings. 

Sadly, all rides and shows at Universal Studios Hollywood will remain closed. However, there is so much to look forward to! "Taste of Universal" will include nearly 70 culinary options, (with 30 new ones being introduced).

Universal Studios Hollywood's press release announced that some of the food options will include:

Hollywood & Dine: This section of the park will feature Cocina Mexicana, Hollywood & Dine, and City Snack Shop. 

Minion Café: Parkgoers can enjoy the debut of the Minion Café that will offer items such as Nutella banana pudding and grilled cheese sandwiches with meatballs.

Springfield, U.S.A.: Home of The Simpsons featuring Krusty Burger, Suds McDuff’s Hot Dog House, the Lard Lad Donut Cart and Kwik-E-Mart.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter: Feel the magic of Harry Potter and enjoy shops including Honeydukes, Ollivanders, and Owl Post. The eateries Three Broomsticks Fish & Chips, Sticky Toffee Pudding, and Butterbeer will also be open. 

Even more shopping and dining will be available at Universal CityWalk.

If you're interested in going, tickets will be priced at $44 plus tax for adults and $25 plus tax for kids aged 3-9. Universal Annual and Season Pass members are eligible for a discount.
